Golden Valley Water System Back to Normal

GOLDEN VALLEY, AZ (May 18, 2021) — On the night of May 7, the Golden Valley Improvement District (GVID) number 1 well failed as a result of water infiltration into the submersible motor and a replacement motor was needed.  This well is the lead production well in the GVID water system, producing 700 gallons per minute.  About 500 homes of the 1,200 customers had a water outage. A replacement submersible motor was found in the Phoenix area and a team arrived to install it on Friday (May 14.) County staff worked every calendar day with urgency to repair the damage.

Mohave County staff restored water pressure to the 500 customers late Saturday afternoon, keeping the Boil Water Advisory in place, pending lab results. The BWA couldn’t be lifted without a lab confirmation that the system was free of harmful bacteria.  Samples were collected late in the afternoon on Saturday and submitted later that night.  Repair of the well was completed late Sunday night. Mohave County staff returned the well to service Monday morning after flushing and disinfection were complete. The Boil Water Advisory was lifted and affected residents were notified on Monday morning by email and Facebook. County staff carefully monitored the system during the day yesterday to make certain all was 100% back to normal.
